    I really enjoyed staying here. The staff were super friendly and helpful when my bags were delayed and had to have the airline deliver them. My only complaint is that it wasn't communicated to me (or I'm assuming other guests) that the room doors have to be manually locked, so there was at least one night where someone new came into the room with their key and failed to lock the door behind them, thus allowing someone random in the middle of the night to open our door.

    Great place to be in Vancouver. In the heart of the city with everything in walking distance! Great night life, great facilities, friendly staff, clean private room. Washrooms could do with a revamp but otherwise great.

    Great location! The staff was friendly, the room was clean, but the hostel is on top of a bar (really convenient for late night eats) but you can hear the music in your room. We didn't mind but if noise bothers you, they also provide free earplugs (: I would stay again!

    Central location in downtown Vancouver at a decent price with a good bar downstairs. Not much of an atmosphere for meeting other travellers, but that could have been due to the season. Overall wasn't bad, but wasn't amazing either. I'd probably stay again for another weekend in Vancouver

    Nice hostel, next to a really nice and relatively cheap pub, and a lovely taco place! Really easy to get to from the airport, and we found it really easy to get everywhere we wanted to, as it's very close to lots of buses. Quick walk into the Gastown area, although we heard from one of our roommates that the other Cambie Hostel in Gastown is busier with more going on. We noticed that all the social events ran by the hostel were hosted at the Gastown location, but this didn't bother us at all.

    The location is great, but unfortunately, that’s all this hostel has going for it! The mattresses are completely worn down to the bed frame, there were minimal outlets for the room with more than half of them not working, and the bathrooms weren’t cleaned during my entire stay (5 days) and the garbage cans in the bathroom stalls were full from not being emptied for several days, if not weeks prior to my stay. The bathroom stalls were then completely out of order my last night due to overflowing.

    The staff who did my check in was the worst I have ever met in hostels. In the following days, the other staff were much more friendly. As I was in the first floor the music was still very loud late night. Another person complained with them about it as well.

    The place is above a very noisy bar and nightclub open til 2am. It is not the place to stay after traveling for 24 hours from Europe.

    Other than being a good location, I have nothing good to say about this hostel. Staff were unfriendly, it was dirty, kitchen very small and limited in cooking utensils. There is a pub downstairs but the atmosphere isn't great. Honestly, don't stay here.
